PTR-TOF 8000

IONICON High-Resolution PTR-TOF-MS
IONICON High-Resolution PTR-TOF-MS
  • Detection limit: < 10 pptv
  • Sensitivity: > 120 cps/ppbv (Benzene)
  • Mass Resolution: > 4000
  • Linearity range:
  • six orders of magnitude (10 pptv - 1 ppmv)

The world's bestselling PTR-TOFMS system: a high mass resolution in combination with high sensitivity and low detection limit that helped many scientists to gain new insights. More than once results have been published in prestigious journals such as SCIENCE and NATURE.

The PTR-TOF 8000 has set the standards in PTR-TOFMS analytics for the last couple of years. The IONICON engineers however did not stop to innovate and now, there is even more performance available with a new instrument generation. Are you interested in up to 25x more sensitivity, one order of magnitude lower detection limit and up 20% more resolution? Welcome to the future of performance: check out the new PTR-QiTOF!

Are you looking for a lighter, smaller and more affordable instrument? Take a look at the PTR-TOF 1000!
